Watch out “Download" Tsang, Payback time!
Mrs Chan wants to stir up some consenus about upcoming political reform. She knows she can’t get into the system to do that. At least, most people already know Beijing will not approve of her nomination. To that, she responses cleverly with this alliance group of people to transcend “Download"‘s administration. That’s not a bad move after all.
In my opinion, strategically Mrs. Chan has chosen a very nice position. She has displayed her influence and I hope she will continue to use her influence whole-heartedly and wisely.
Must she run the next “election" to be influential? No. Is 68 too old? Depends. Is being a grandma a problem? Depends. If a government is healthy and doing things right, it doesn’t matter how many people openly discuss politics. I hope her voice will pose a healthy pressure on the govt. I admire her will power and wisdom and respect her experience in politics. Wish her good health and pure heart.
To me it can go both. If she participates in the HKSAR CEO election, it will give pressure to Donald Tsang despite the end result might still be the same. It makes sure all the political issues are being thrust out. There will be more direct debate but will also create a lot of tension to the Beijin Government and provoke backlash (i.e. smear campaign etc)
Now she withdraws and decide to use media to comment on public policy. The debat is not direct and Donald can choose to answer or not to answer. Donald also has bouncer like Stanley Ho plus a bunch of other so called consultant to do the cleanup job.
Long story short, if the Pan-Democratic parties are divergent rather than convergent, the progress of democracy is questionable.
We are lucky to see general election by 2016.
One thing I can never find a straight answer. Traditional Chinese are entrepreneur rather than intreprenuer meaning people like be their own boss. If you don’t like what you see, start another one. That’s what happen in the Toronto Chinese Politics Movement — so many political promoting association that can not work together as a team.
